Easy Leg Day

Image

Thank you all for being so patient this month!  It’s been a hectic one looking for a new apartment – my “everyday” goal has been more like every week…  Once I move this weekend, I hope to be back on schedule!

When life gets busy, sometimes our workouts fall by the wayside.  The idea of getting to the gym and hitting it hard when you’re exhausted usually means a workout doesn’t happen at all.  Perfect time to pull out an easy-going workout that doesn’t seem overwhelming.  This workout took me only 45 minutes today.
